Kim accused the popular fan page of spreading rumours about his latest collection.
Kim Kardashian has blasted popular Twitter fan page Yeezy Mafia over their recent comments about Yeezy Season 7.
The reality TV star has vowed to shut down the account and claims to have "made calls" to put the wheels in motion, it appears.
Yeezy Mafia, in a since-deleted tweet, claimed that buyers were invited to an empty showroom where they were told that there wouldn’t be any apparel or accessories for Season 7 as Kanye West wasn't happy with the collection.
Following the backlash, the Mafia clarified that the showroom wasn't empty, as it featured footwear, and apologised for not using the "correct words".

Apologize for saying showroom was empty, it wasn’t, there was boots. But they were already there and already ordered at the Season 7 showroom in Milan a month ago. We didn’t use the correct words so sorry for that— YEEZY MAFIA (@theyeezymafia) 7 March 2018
In response, Kim took to Twitter to slam the fan page for spreading rumours about her husband's brand and to point out that Yeezy Mafia is in no way affiliated with the official Yeezy line.
She confirmed that the showroom was only ever intended for the purpose of displaying shoes, before adding that the Season 7 collection will be available online soon.
"How are you gonna believe an account that posts fake color ways," she added after fans requested that popular fan account TeamKanyeDaily be re-verified.
Kim put fans minds at rest, however, as she claims she has "made calls" to sort out the situation with both accounts.
How can a verified account represent Yeezy with false information. You do NOT work for Yeezy and NOT affiliated. How are you gonna believe an account that posts fake color ways https://t.co/xkaYC98G7u— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) 6 March 2018
Season 6 was genius. All of my Japan looks are season 7 & will be online soon. Yeezy does not play by fashion rules. The show room was strictly shoes & always intended for that. https://t.co/xkaYC98G7u— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) 6 March 2018
YEEZY HAS ITS OWN UNIVERSE #SEASON7— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) 6 March 2018
Re-verify @TeamKanyeDaily. I don't understand how YeezyMafia is allowed to have "Yeezy" in their name, but TeamKanye can't have "Kanye" in their name. :(— Josh tK (@DubaloDesign) 6 March 2018
Oh I’ve made calls...just wait https://t.co/WhuqHBGAGU— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) 6 March 2018
The mother-of-three actively promotes her husband's clothing line across her social media accounts, frequently posting images of herself modelling the apparel.
Earlier this year, the brand enlisted the help of various models and influencers including Paris Hilton and Jordyn Woods to follow in Kim's footsteps, which was rumoured to be breaking Instagram's advertising policies.
Popular online fashion site Missguided were later accused of copying the new Yeezy collection in their latest line of apparel, named 'The New Essentials'.
